We have purchased a new Sylvania 22" LCD/HDTV and have HDTV through Time Warner cable and a Motorola DVR receiver. I purchased a HDMI cable and installed it. I have a wonderful picture but cannot get any sound?
Re: HDMI cable installed, have picture but no sound?
I think i know the problem. HDMI cables come in different specs. 1.1 , 1.2 and 1.3.
1.3 cable will be able to pass more information through the cable where as the cheaper standard cables wont be able to pass as much through therefore giving you no sound.
I have the same problem, I have just bought a brand new DVD upscaling player and connected it with the HDMI cable that it came with, unfortunately I had a picture but no sound.
I was told today that it was because i needed a new upgraded cable, which to my disappointment can cost quite a bit of money.
Hope this is some help to you, i really do believe it is the cable causing the problem,

Some HDTVs are unable to support High-Bandwidth Digital Content Protection (HDCP). HDCP is a digital rights management system intended to protect copyrighted content when connecting your electronic components with either an HDMI or DVI cable.

Not necessarily. You can use the normal connecting cable but you may not get HDTV picture.
Better is to connect through HDMI cable where you can view HD pitures on the channels transmitting HD programmes
Hello boss, here is d way to make best use of it. step 1.Make sure ur LCD or Plasma HDTV has an HDMI port. Hopfuly u bought 1 with it, if not, you may be stuck using component cables. Not bad, but not he best. Component cables change d digital signal frm the cable box into an analog signal. This conversion allows for signal degradation. U want to keep the digital signal transmitted frm the cable company 2 go directly into ur HDTV. An HDMI cable will provide u wid this capability n with d clearest picture. 2. Make sure ur cable box has an HDMI port. Most cable companies do not offer a cable box with an HDMI port on the initial install. You may need to upgrade by calling your cable company and asking if they have a cable box wid HDMI capability. Ask them 2 send u 1. 3.Purchase an HDMI cable. TIP - The longer d distance between the cable box n d HDTV, the better d quality HDMI cable. This is due to degradation of d digital signal over long distances, wiz could result in a poor quality picture. ne distance over sixteen feet should be compensated 4 by using a heavier gauge HDMI cable. Oh yea, don't get taken by buying the most expensive cables. From what I have read, companies are cashing in on this relatively new technology. I bought my "gold-plated" HDMI cables from an Ebay Store, "eforcity" for about a quarter of the price found at the local electronic store. Connect one end of your HDMI cable into the HDMI (out) port on the back of your cable box and connect the other end to the HDMI (in) port on the back of your HDTV.55 Read the instructions that came with ur new HDMI compatible cable box. These instructions will explain the download process the cable box needs to go through before use and the Setup Wizard that will program the cable box to send the correct picture format to your HDTV. If u did not get instructions, u can get them at the cable box manufacturers website. Scientific Atlanta's website: http://www.scientificatlanta.com/products/consumers/new_cableboxes.ht64. Adjust video, audio, and screen settings to ur liking. The explanation for these settings can be found in ur HDTV's user's manual.75.Push ur "source" button on ur remote control or HDTV n select HDMI. Tune to a Hi-Def channel. Most Hi-Def channels r in the 700 channel range. Check cable company listings 4 d specific channels.
the only thing that i can think of is that the cables and connections are bad but if that is not the case it may be the internal components of the tv. my guess is that the tv was dropped or jumbled around while transported and what happened was internal components were broken or just mixed up so go to the retailer and get a refund or a new tv. hope this helps
You will have to go into the settings of the hd box by pressing the settings button twice and then scroll down to "audio digital out". chances are that it is set to Dolby Digital. If you right arrow over you can then set it to HDMI. this should bring your volume back. Hope this helps.
